This past Friday I had wonderful opportunity to go and see the Alvin Ailey dancers at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. I went with a group of ladies from work and someway somehow we were able to see a mini-show (1-hour long) for about $10. It was an awesome deal. I believe that the performance was geared toward children but it really didn’t matter to any of us.
The mini show consisted of two sets: one new (Uptown) and one old (Revelations). Uptown was very jazzy and choreographed by a former Alvin Ailey dancer. Revelations features negro spirituals and the dancers are dressed in church wear and hats, and at some point they wear all white for a baptism interpretation.
If you love dance and arts, then going to see the Alvin Ailey show is a must. They usually come to Atlanta every February. If you can, try the mini show. Otherwise, plan an evening out and enjoy the amazing dancers of the Alvin Ailey dance company.
